Spalding power cut drama ends after causing late start to theatre show

More than 2,000 homes and businesses in Spalding are back to normal after a power cut in the town earlier today (Tuesday).

Electrical engineers from utility supplier Western Power Distribution worked to repair a fault which led to parts of the town losing power just before 12.20pm.

One of those affected was Spalding's South Holland Centre where the final performance of Rapunzel, a Polka Dot Pantomimes production, was due to have started at 1pm.

Sally Harrison, South Holland Centre's manager, said: "The power went off at 12.25pm when we were due to open our doors to the public before the pantomime show at 1pm.

"We made the decision to delay the start of the pantomime until 1.30pm but as it turned out, we started the show at 1.45pm.

"This is because when the power went back on, the centre's sound desk had to be reset so we had to take a little bit of time to get ourselves back up and running.

"I'd like to say thank you to all of our customers who were so lovely and stayed really positive as we were dealing with the situation."
